security challenge. since 9/11, cockpit doors are now sealed so ples can't be used as bombs. other simple security measures that focus on travel have made open societies much less vulnerable. al qaeda terrorists and their ilk are being chased around the mountains of afghanistan. they are being bombed in pakistan. their money trails are being tracked the world over. it's very tough to plan major terrorist attacks in that environment. so smaller local groupinspired but not directed by al qaeda have found ways to attack easy, open targets like cafes, nightclubs, traistations. but the result is th kill locals rather than americans or brits or foreign soldiers. and of course is means that islamic radicali loses plic support in all these countries. think of saudi arabia as the perfect example. the poll numbers on this are stunning. islamic radicalism has been su losing public support in every muslim country over the last nine years. the result -- al qaeda is a mucr weakened enemy militarily, economically, politically. in the past nine years it has been able to put together scary videotapes, but
know, it's interesting that he used the analogy of talking and describing himself as david up against a goliath when, in fact, he is the leader of one of the largest churches in the united states. he knows presidents and he knows world leaders. so it's hard to imagine that he really is kind of this small individual going up against a giant. i guess in other words, he is trying to portray that the young men who have come forward or their defense team, their legal team is being some sort of goliath. so it's not interesting picture that he tried to portray. he did a very good job, though, of appealing to his congregation whether they truly feel they've heard the truth remains to be seen. we haven't been able to talk to them. we're sequestered in this room here. >> let's bring in don lemon, cnn anchor and reporter, who has been not only covering this but also talking to some members of the congregation. don, martin said it was interesting that he picked david vs. goliath because in many ways the four young men who are accusing the pastor of coercing them into a sexual relationship, i beli
budget cuts. mr. deputy prime minister, thanks for joining us. >> it's great to be here. >> you as a liberal democrat are now in coalition with a conservative government, and what strikes me, and i think what strikes most people as most unusual, is that you have been ferocious in your defense of these budget cuts that the government has put together. but there are lots of people who argue that what you're doing is actually politically, but economically dangerous, that is, at a time when there is no demand in the private sector, when companies are not spending, when people are not spending, the government is the spender of last resort. and by withdrawing money from the economy, by cutting, you know, salaries for schoolteachers, grants to student museums, local governments, you are actually going to send the economy into a second recession, or at the very least, make it even more fragile than it is. >> well, i think some of the debate has slightly caricatured what we're trying to do, as something which is going to happen brutally overnight. i think as people look at the details of
